That's definitely a 430 from what I can tell. It looks like he had a slow start and (judging by the smoke) was experiencing a lot of wheel spin.

There's no doubt that the Model S is fast but this was a horrible comparison IMO. The Model S got the jump and the M5 was experiencing massive wheel spin. Not to mention, even if the Model S happens to be legitimately faster to 100 (doubt this very much) the M5 will freight train the shit out of the Model S after 100 and keep pulling hard to speeds the Model S can't even do.

That Wald IS-F inspired diffuser is ridiculous!
